Once again no clue what I’ll use it for but it’s so adorable, so I spent almost $4 on a single button.
Oh and I picked up pieces of these awesome ribbons.
Well I guess it’s about time I actually sit down to write this post about the fun things I picked up on my USA excursion at the beginning of the month.
I got this amazing bag, that I’ve been using almost non stop since, for $3. Actually, not even $3 I’m rounding up. Insanely good find.
I got some great clothes, which I suppose call for some outfit posts. But that’s a tricky one since I’m usually the one behind the camera, I really need to change that.
Other than that my scores happened in JoAnn’s, surprise surprise.
Some FQs just because.
A taste of Denise Schmidt.
Some yardage. Apparently I was in a floral sort of mood.
Whales because how could I not buy those!?! Sure I had a moment of “Gee I’m 30 something should I really be shopping from the juvenile section for myself!?” but I *had* to get these whales.
And I found an english translation of a Japanese craft book I already own. Since I had some coupons the book was half price and I figured it might work like a little guide to help me decode my ever growing stash of Japanese craft books. I have 2 new Cotton Time magazines and today I figured out which symbols say ‘fold’ so I’m pretty proud of myself.
I know it involves more hexies but I need to get around to making this, again it’s just too awesome.
I also picked up some ridiculously cute scrubs that I plan to hack to bits and sew into other stuff.
Did I really just miss almost a whole week of blogging?! Where does time go!?
Guess I’ve been fooling myself saying “Once school’s out I’ll have so much time to do things”. Summer vacation isn’t as productive when you have a 3 year old and 5 year old to entertain and play with.
I did manage to do some creating last week. I’m getting ready for the Broken Arts Fest I’ll be at on Saturday.
Here’s the one with that vintage fabric I thrifted a while back, love the little handkerchiefs.
This bunny fabric is fun. I’ve had scraps of it in packs I’ve ordered here and there and I finally just went ahead and ordered a half yard.
I’d better get catching up on my Create Along post, and writing about the Hamilton EtsyCA meet up, and sharing some random stuff . .
In my haste to get ready for my table today I didn’t post my Create Along, silly me.
But it’s probably a good thing because I’m not done my Cozy Blue creation anyway. I plan on working away on it while I sit today.
So reveal to come soon and here’s a fun quick tutorial for our next project. It’s from Noodlehead and I’ve had this page open in a tab for a while and my kids caught sight of it so now I’ve been nudged to making some.
Plus I’ve got loads of fun vehicle themed Japanese fabric lying around. Yeah, I have a problem.
Annnnnnnd my BFF is pretty awesome. Here’s some of the fun goodies she got me (she snooped in my Etsy favs). There’s a really cool nautical patterned fabric.
Some fun vinyl stuff, nice linen/cotton blends, fun ribbon and a button.
And this cool piece with vintage images on it, it’s some sort of panel type thing. I’ll find a use for it.
Luckily it’s a half day of work for me so here’s hoping Nate has a nice nap and Wesley is enamoured with his LEGO yet again this afternoon and maybe I can wander off and create something fun with all this pretty new stuff!
I’ve also got a DIY post featured here today, a little back to school organization sewing project that anyone with little kids to get ready will love. Hope you all have a great day, even if it’s not your birthday!
